Applications for mobile devices, often called "apps," have become essential for businesses, consumers and government. Geospatial technology – making geographic information available for commercial uses – is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a high-growth industry. In response to the increasing demand for this state-of-the-art technology, LIU Post offers a 12-credit fully online Advanced Certificate in Mobile GIS Applications Development.
